Outfielder Willy Mo Pena is back with the Mets organization. After being released by the Washington Nationals this spring, he has agreed to a minor league contract with the Mets, the team that originally signed him as a free agent in 1998.

Pena will go to Florida for extended spring training and then report to Triple-A Buffalo. He’s been a major disappointment for most of his career. He has monsterous power when he can connect with the ball which hasn’t been that often in recent years. He’s never been a full-time player during his career having played in 110 games twice over his seven season major league career.

I’m not sure what he brings to the table for the Mets. I have to believe that he’s a right-handed power hitting outfielder that will act as an insurance policy in case Gary Sheffield proves to be washed up.

  1. Interesting pickup… It looks like Omar is back at it again… Picking up cheap players on their downslope to see if he can pull anything more out of them…
